Open Education Week

A series of events for instructors to share and learn about Open Educational Resources (OER)

12:00 pm–1:00 pm
Online via Zoom Room:
Beverly Russell,
NU’s Open Education Week’s events are part of the Open Nebraska initiative, which aims to amplify the usage of free and reduced cost digital course materials and expand the transparency of participating courses and programs across the NU System. As of the Spring 2022 semester, these efforts have saved students across the NU System over $9 million.

On Friday, March 11, 2022 starting at 12:00 p.m., there will be a panel discussion with UNO’s Department of Geography/Geology.

Faculty and instructors in UNO’s Department of Geography/Geology have embraced Open Educational Resources (OER). What have they learned? What have they tried, and how have students responded? What have they observed concerning student recruitment and/or retention? What has been gained pedagogically (e.g., content flexibility)? Has anything been lost in the move away from textbooks and other purchased materials? This discussion will feature faculty who have been awarded OER grants to reduce or eliminate students’ costs for course materials in social science and natural science classes.

Moderated by Karen Falconer Al-Hindi, Ph.D., Professor of Geography, Department of Geography and Geology.

Bradley Bereitschaft, Ph.D. Professor of Geography, Department of Geography and Geology.

Ashlee Dere, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Geology, Department of Geography and Geology.

Farrah Grant, M.A. Instructor, Department of Geography and Geology.

Zac Suriano, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Climatology, Department of Geography and Geology.

Gabrielle Tegeder, Ph.D. Adjunct Professor, Department of Geography and Geology.
